Total Communication

Welcome

Gloucestershire Total Communication actively promotes all methods of communication. Our aim is to ensure a ‘common language’ is adopted for all people to help make a consistent and positive difference to everybody’s lives.

Information, networking and the development of shared resources for a common language are vital.
